Recommendation

Terrorism has profound, multidimensional effects on individuals and society as a whole. For the European Union, the economic losses just from foregone wages from injuries and medical care are staggering. Research finds that, beyond direct costs, terrorist incidents can influence individuals’ patterns of spending and investment. getAbstract recommends this succinct but worthwhile article from the World Economic Forum to anyone interested in the sobering statistics on terrorism’s economic damage.
